You might be a slut if…
…You are a liberal;
—You are a Democrat;
…You ever burned your bra;
…You ever lived with a boyfriend;
—You’re still downloading Dixie Chick music;
—You teach your daughters about safe sex.
No, it’s not a new Jeff Foxworthy routine. It’s part of a campaign against repressive right-wing Republicans who think women who enjoy sex are sluts. The web site, WarOnWomen.Com is organizing free-thinking women to battle conservative blowhards like Rush Limbaugh, who attacked law student Sandra Fluke and called her a “slut” because she had the gall to testify before Congress and support contraception.
Susan McMillan Emry launched the web site with the slogan “Rock the Slut Vote” and is seeking volunteers to send the right-wing back into their caves.
Emry says she wants to “re-appropriate” the word “slut” and turn it from a negative to a positive so the rabid right wing can’t use it to “bully and silence women.”
“It’s really about taking the power away from that word more than it is about Rush Limbaugh,” Emry told Reuters. “He gave the word the notoriety but we are tying to take it back.”
Emry is also selling bumper stickers and t-shirts at her site. A best-seller is one that says “Rush Limbaugh thinks I’m a slut.”
